Finding My Place

I’ve been thinking about this post for a long time and it’s been more difficult than it usually is for me. Normally, the inspiration honestly just comes. I like to think it’s because someone out there needs to hear what I’m saying. Perhaps the reason this one has been a struggle is because I’m the…

The Taboo of Being in the 20%

There’s a giant pink elephant in the middle of the world for some of you right now. It’s called October. As many of you know, October is Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Month. And it’s hard. And we don’t talk about it. No one EVER talks about it. But I’m going to- because it’s important…

Midnight Confessions

It’s been one week. 7 days. 168 painstaking, anxiety filled, heartrending hours. One week ago, I was released as primary president and called to serve with the young women. For those of you that have been with us for a while, you know what that calling meant to me. You know what those children meant…

Stained Glass

It’s late at night…and while I should be sleeping, I’ve been thinking. Thinking and watching Vintage Flip on HGTV because my brain doesn’t want to sleep…clearly. As I often do, I learn something while I’m watching these shows and think that it’s totally something that I should do So, this couple is restoring a vintage…

A Childless Mother’s Day Wishlist…

We’ve all seen the commercials for the upcoming holiday. The “show mom how much you care with” or “mom gave up everything for you, this year give her ” or “because of mom… ” Now, don’t get me wrong, I would never, ever discount everything that mothers do, but this post isn’t about them. It’s…

My Silent Night

Let’s be honest. Christmas is hard. It’s supposed to be a joyful time- but when you’re in my shoes, sometimes, it’s just hard. As hard as I try to feel absolute joy about Christmas, every once in a while, the sadness creeps in. It’s inevitable. It’s usually when I get beautiful Christmas cards from my…

He’ll Carry You…

As most of you know, I’m the Primary President in my ward. Most days, I love my calling. In fact, 99.9% of the time, I love my calling. But, I’ll be the first to tell you that the Primary Program STRESSES ME OUT. And even though this is the fifth one I’ve done…it still freaks…

My Rightful and Needful Place

Wow. General Conference was AMAZING. I’m not sure if it was just amazing or if it’s because I made a personal effort to listen well and to take notes, but either way, I got what I needed. The talk that has been on my mind the most as of late has been the talk “A…

Say Yes to the Dress!

Let’s talk wedding dresses. They come in all shapes, sizes and colors. Sparkles or no sparkles. Lace or no lace. Long, short, flowy, clingy, ballgowns, a lines and so many other choices. To a woman, a wedding dress is the gown of all gowns. It’s the one day of your life when you get to…

Making Enough of Me…

Sisters, Let me start by saying I’m not sure why I’m posting this. I’m not sure who it’s for, or if it’s just for me… I was just listening to some LDS music while getting my lessons ready for the rest of the month and ran across this song. It’s called “Make Enough of Me”…
